WHO AM I?
I decided that I’d experiment with hand drawn animation, and enrolled for online animation classes with Aaron Blaise. The programme recommended by Blaise is the Tv-Paint. This led to me procuring the Wacom Intuos Digital tablet, thereby making the transition from traditional media to the digital. In order to learn to use the programme, I have had rely on youtube tutorials as well as pay for a ‘Complete Animation Course” by Aaron Blaise via his website http://www.creatureartteacher.com. The Complete Animation Course is a comprehensive introduction to animation which takes the student through the key animation principles.
My attempt at the tutorial
The attached link shows what was achieved after a spending a day learning the basic of animation programme Tv-Paint, as well as following tutorials on Aaron Blaise’s channel for more insight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiPcmAr3nq8
I wasn’t able to save the video as the trial version of Tv-Paint doesn’t allow for progress to be saved at any point. This is why the video was recorded using a phone.
I progressed to making a storyboard loosely based on some random thoughts I had.
I then proceeded to work on a story board for another project which I intend to make into a 1 minute short movie. So far, 300 drawings have been made
in this regard. I will spend time during the summer break to develop and modify the idea with the hope that it will be complete.
